His effort helped the Lakers offset Kay Felder's game-high 25 points and advance to the championship quarterfinals.Lonzo Ball records his second triple-double of #NBASummer! Despite a lackluster first game in which he scored just five points on 2-for-15 shooting, Ball redeemed himself in his next game with a triple double performance (11 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists).
Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball put on a show Wednesday night in the Las Vegas Summer League.
But last night, in just his third Summer League game, the 19-year-old had a far more impressive game after ditching his BBB shoes for purple Kobe A.D. sneakers. Ball kept people guessing Thursday when he jogged onto the court in a pair of James Harden's signature Adidas shoes.
Ball, the No. 2 pick in last month's National Basketball Association draft, had his second triple-double in four games - 16 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds, five steals and two blocked shots - against the Cavaliers (3-1), a solid follow to his 36-11-8-5-2 outing against the 76ers.
James, who watched the game but left with six minutes remaining, was impressed with what he saw from the Lakers prized rookie. Is it the shoes?
Perhaps the bigger story should be that Ball looks pretty good in Summer League following that rough debut.
LaVar Ball has been able to generate plenty of buzz in his effort to create a brand for his family, but it seems like Watt is more focused on affordability than popularity. If you're interested in checking out some summer hoops, or to see what Lonzo has on his feet, you can catch the game on ESPN2 at 10:30 EST.
